ST. LOUIS – A woman injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist alleges her insurer refused to make a payment in accordance with her benefits.

Betty Peters filed a complaint on Jan. 4 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against American Family Mutual Insurance Co. alleging negligence and breach of contract/vexatious refusal.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 7, 2017, she was involved in an automobile collision with the vehicle operated by Rance Biggerstaff, an uninsured motorist, at or near the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 and Thriftway. She suffered serious injuries to her neck, chest, ribs, face, head and neck as a result of the collision.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant in an amount of more than $25,000 and reasonable attorney's fees. She is represented by David G. Hughes of Mogab & Hughes Attorneys PC in St. Louis.
